Secluded. Quiet. Peaceful. The definition of serenity. This picturesque tract lies at the foothills of the Piedmont Plateau, bringing unique beauty deep into Alabama.The abundant roadways throughout the land wind through large stands of mature longleaf pines on the ridges and significant oak and hickory hardwoods in the bottoms. The understory is filled with lush mountain laurel, bigleaf magnolia, and wild azaleas, bringing color to the forest floor during the spring months. Several creeks fill the valleys, fed year-round by cold clear springs coming forth from the hillsides with some becoming magnificent waterfalls dropping large distances down the rock faces.
Chestnut creek, which forms the southern and eastern boundary of the tract, is a fishermans and canoers dream. Each turn of the 1 miles of creek varies from rapids with large smooth stones and cold, crisp water to large, deep lazy areas with overhanging laurels and bald eagles flying above. Spotted, white, and redeye bass abound behind each eddy, while catfish and large gar fill the open areas. Further, the rapids afford unforgettable excitement to the avid canoer, with the creek eventually emptying into the Jordan river another mile past the property. Several sand beaches along the rocked bottom segments of the creek make for a perfect picnic getaway.
Not only is the small game, duck, and deer hunting excellent with many trophy bucks taken from the property, but the turkey hunting is second to none in the state, where, in the spring, they reside upon the clover knolls and echo their gobbles into the bloomed dogwood valleys below. The mature hardwoods provide hard mass forage including abundant acorns and beechnuts for both large and small game while the fruit trees add a soft mass supplement to their diet.
A log cabin lies nestled amongst the longleaf pines, looking over Chestnut creek below. The 1200sq cabin is built from white pine logs and rocks gathered from the property. A deep dug well and a generator provide crisp water and power to the fully plumbed, wired, heated, and air-conditioned house. Not only does the generator provide sufficient power to the cabin, but power is also an option via deeded access to the property. The large wood-burning fireplace, framed with riverstones, is a comfort to returning hunters, while swinging to the sound of crickets and cicadas complete a day on the water fishing below. With an additional storage shed built with rough sawn popular timber by the Amish and several sites for additional homes if desired, this tract is no doubt a turnkey property.
There are very few places in Alabama where such seclusion and Smoky Mountain like beauty can be found with such convenience of being only 40 minutes of both Birmingham and Montgomery. With both fantastic hunting and un-paralleled fishing this tract is too good to pass up.
